  1. Thank you very much for the information. I'll just try to install the Hight Sierra and leave it at that
  2. "We could not complete your purchase. This version of macOS 10.15.2 cannot be installed on this computer." This is the message I got when I tried to download Catalina on to my computer. Is this really the case? About 2 years ago when I tried to upgrade from Sierra to Mojave I was told I would not be able to upgrade to Mofave because of my graphics (Intel HD 3000). I've seen some fixes for that issue. Can someone please tell me should I just forget about Catalina and Mojave and just try to upgrade to Hight Sierra? Thank you

    Where is Mojave

    Sorry that EFI didn't work neither.There are two things I would like to point out.First, when I start the installer at first it looks as if it's going to work but then it stops and a few seconds later I get the error, but what I noticed is in that first instant when it seems as if it' s going to work the light on the USB goes out and does not come back on. In other words the USB is not being accessed any more in fact there is no power to it. Second point before I changed the EFI I was not able to use this USB to boot in to my other partition with my working Sierra. Now with this new EFI I was able to boot my working Sierra but there was a little of graphics errors and the mouse and keyboard didn't work. I tried with wired mouse and keyboard in USB2 and USB3 nothing but the mouse was getting power because the light on the mouse would light up as soon as I plugged it in. I don't know maybe that may help you experts figure out what going on with my system.

    Still getting the same or similar error. Sorry for the delay but I had to recreate my USB. I do have USB3.0 ports on my desktop (all in one to be more exact). Not through an add-on card. Attached is my new EFI with the config.plist.zip you provided. this EFI had no NullCPUPowerManegent Kext or any other kext for that matter. Also added SSDT EFI.zip

    Attached a zipped copy of my Clover EFI folder (less the Themes subfolder) By the way that clover works perfectly for Sierra EFI.zip

    Not so much luck attempting to install High Sierra. After booting and selecting the USB where I have the installer I get the screen shot attached. Any suggestion?

    I thought by just using the hd3000 kext it would work. As that’s not the case I’ll just try upgrading to High Sierra and stop there.

    Hervé thank you for your quick reply. Forgive my ignorance but I need a little explanation of what you mean

    Where is Mojave

    I wanted to upgrade from Sierra to Mojave. When I try to download Mojave from the App Store is says I need to have High Sierra. Can someone please tell me where I can download the full Mojave to create a USB installer to install on another drive. Thank you

    Will High Sierra work?

    Thanks for the reply even though it was not what I was hopping to hear. Unfortunately my computer is a Sony vaio all in one which means I can't change the graphics card.

    Black screen when I use -v

    Tried another method I found which is specifically for VAIO which is what I've got got but it didn't quite work. For the first time except for the iAtkos I got my machine to boot from the USB I created. Attached are the first screen when I boot and the second is when I trie to continue Sorry about the reflection on the second photo, hope you can see enough of it by the way that was using Clover

    I have tried Clover as well. Here is the thing I have not been able to even try installing Sierra on my Machine. All the methods I've tried won't boot. The only ones that boot and install successfully are iAtlos 10.6 (Snow Leopard) and iAtkos 10.8 (Mountain Lion). Even though those 2 iAtkos installers installed successfully I was not able to boot any of them after the successful installation. The fact that those two installations won't boot, I don't really care. My goal is to install Sierra
